Great story. May he Rest In Peace
But the Eagle Scout still gave us so much to think about with his films.
I helped a friend, Al Lerman, a WW 2 Corsiar Pilot make a video recording about his life and his role in the war for Arnold Spielberg. Arnold had a sculptured head of Al Lerman made for a World War 2 museum, and this was Al's way of thanking him. To see this video and one other photo, go to https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/alvin-lerman-obituary?pid=156650066.
Nice video Ronnie. Below is an image and the story about the busts.
Al was related to Arnold, a cousin, and they worked at the Lerman Brothers department store in the Cincinnati area, which later was Arnolds inspiration as an EE for his development of point-of-sale systems. Along with Arnolds brother "Buddy" all three served during WWII in the Pacific.
"The above photo of three busts is of brothers Irvin and Arnold Spielberg and their cousin Alvin Lerman. Both Spielberg brothers served in the Army Air Corps. Mr. Lerman was a Naval Aviator. All three of the young men served their country in the Pacific War."
This text was taken from the detailed description of the 'Face to Face' exhibit at the National Museum of the Pacific War.

Thank You John, I had never seen the busts before.

Someone should share this thread with Steven. Not sure how to connect the two, but it would be worth the effort. Anyone in the know?

Thank you John W0PV for sharing info about OM Arnold Spielberg, else many of us could not know about him. He lived his life and achieved good many things. All ham sprit & interest reflected in his life, surely it should have also impact on his son too.
